Gorgeous Stalactite and Stalagmite Calcite Crystal

















Measurements: 12 1/4” Tall, 6 1/4” Wide and 2” Thick. Weight: 8 lbs

This is a Exceptional Specimen of Stalactite and Stalagmite Crystal elongated forms of various minerals deposited from solution by slowly dripping water. A stalactite hangs like an icicle from the ceiling or sides of a cavern. A Stalagmite appears like an inverted Stalactite, rising from the floor of a cavern. Stalactites hanging from the ceilings of caverns commonly exhibit a central tube or the trace of a former tube whose diameter is that of a drop of water hanging by surface tension. A drop on the tip of a growing stalactite leaves a deposit only around its rim. Downward growth of the rim makes the tube. The simplest stalactite form, therefore, is a thin-walled stone straw, and these fragile forms may reach lengths of 0.5 m (20 inches) or more where air currents have not seriously disturbed the growth. The more common form is a downward-tapering cone and is simply a thickening of the straw type by mineral deposition from a film of water descending the exterior of the pendant. Stalagmites have thicker proportions and grow up on the bottom of a cavern from the same drip-water source, the mineral from which is deposited after the water droplet falls across the open space in the rock. Not every stalactite has a complementary stalagmite, and many of the latter may have no stalactite above them. Where the paired relation exists, however, continual elongation of one or both may eventually result in a junction and the formation of a column. The dominant mineral in such deposits is calcite (calcium carbonate), and the largest displays are formed in caves of limestone and dolomite. Other minerals that may be deposited include other carbonates, opal, chalcedony, limonite, and some sulfides. Conditions that favour the deposition are: (1) a source rock above the cavern; (2) downward percolation of water supplied from rain; (3) tight but continuous passageways for this water, which determine a very slow drip; and (4) adequate air space in the void to allow either evaporation or the escape of carbon dioxide from the water, which thus loses some of its solvent ability.

Why Psychic Pathways Crystals are Different from Other Sellers

Many of the Crystals at Psychic Pathways were mined over 50 years ago.  There is no access to the long ago crystal mines because the urban sprawl has covered these outpourings with private houses, asphalt, and occasional grass.  Over the years, I've purchased collections from long-ago crystal mines that don't exist anymore.

 I am an Affiliate of The Association of Melody Crystal Healing Instructors, a Reiki Master, and a Graduate Gemologist through the Gemological Institute of America. I also own Psychic Pathways, a trademarked company.

 I channel the energy from stones so you may understand the items that you're purchasing. All stones have been seriously looked at before putting up for sale.

One must remember that a stone is not just a stone, it is a living thing, and the energy of each  stone is very important.

We combine shipping on all items to reduce your shipping costs.  Your crystals will be free of negative energies as all of my crystals transmit love and positive energy.

I am a Graduate Gemologist through GIA in Carlsbad, California (the Harvard of Gemology Education), a Reiki Master, and an Affiliate of the Association of Melody Crystal Healing Instructors.  EBay Store Pathways and our site sell Clear Metaphysical Crystals including Azeztulite, Petalite, Phenacite, Angelite, Hiddenite, Tibetan Jet, Lithium Quartz, Rare Pink Crystals, True Strawberry Quartz, Orgone Devices, Atlantean & Lemurian Crystals, Fine Wire Wrapped and Sculpted Jewelry, Healing Jewelry, etc. We have been in business since 1997, and have literally sold thousands of healing crystals and jewelry to many satisfied customers.
